One Sunday in Maine [New York Child + Family Photography]
Among the positive things that I attribute to the Internet, at the top of my list is unquestionably: the relationships. No matter where you live, no matter what your local community, there is a larger Neighborhood out there of like-minded people who are looking to connect. I'm not talking about on-line dating, though I understand that's not weird, the way it was back in the day when I was dating. I'm talking about making friends. Five or six years ago Stephanie and I met and for months we were friends who had never heard each other's voices. Our relationship progressed to talking and visiting and all these years later I treasure our friendship. Last summer she and her lovely family hosted me and mine at her new (to her) home in Portland.
